One thing I am adjusting to in Montreal is the weather. In particular, the idea of SEASONS. I grew up in Los Angeles, where the majority of the year was dry and warm. Which is great in its own sense. But the drastically changing seasons here in Montreal are certainly something to behold. Fall in particular, where the temperature comes down, the days become shorter, and of course the leaves change into those amazing colors. It’s teaching me to appreciate each season much more, and to think of change as a way to let go and reset a little. Not sure if I totally like it (winter is rough), but perhaps it’s good for my overall well being. We’ll see. For now, time to break out my scarf and coats.
Participated in this amazing flash mob/hip hop parade in Montreal, organized by the good folks at Urban Science. The pics don’t quite do it justice; the vibe was electric! Much love to all the talented folks who showed up!
Still getting used to the idea of real seasons. Fall in Montreal is definitely one of my favorites. It also means that winter is around the corner, but I’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.
Gonna be performing at Festival des Solidarités happening at Parc Jean-Brilliant in Cote-des-Neiges! I’ll be hitting the stage during the “FOIRE DE SOLIDARITÉ” portion of the event, Saturday the 16th at noon, along with Rap Battles for Social Justice and Nazim. The entire festival is September 15-16, and features some amazing speakers and performers. For more info check out their Facebook event page.
Filipino community members in Montreal standing in solidarity with the victims of Philippine president Duterte’s unjust and inhumane war on drugs, which has resulted in the deaths of thousands of people during his one year in office, including 17 year-old Kian Delos Santos, murdered last week by Philippine police in Caloocan City. His mother, an overseas Filipino worker, was forced to come home to the funeral of her son. #JusticeForKian #StopTheKillings #OFWs4Kian
Conference wrapped up. Blood, sweat, and tears is an understatement. Was mostly busy running around, but I know a lot of good and historic work was being done. Glad to see kasamas old and new, especially happy to reunite with my Bay Area crew. On to the next. Isulong!!! #SolidarityFightBack
